This site is undergoing a few changes to be more current, so check back to keep updated.  Also note that in the next while we will be changing our look on the web, and we are excited to modernize our web site. We hope to have it completed by early fall.  

CUPE Nova Scotia represents more than 19,000 working women and men employed throughout the public sector.  We are proud to be part of Canada's largest and fastest-growing union.

CUPE represents workers in health care, education, municipalities, libraries, child care, universities, social services, public utilities, transportation, emergency services and airlines.

CUPE members are service-providers, white-collar workers, technicians, labourers, skilled trades people and professionals. More than half of CUPE members are women. About one-third are part-time workers.
